Arsenal suffered a shocking 1-0 defeat against Bate Borisov in the first leg of their Europa League last-32 clash at Borisov Arena.
Stanislav Dragun scored in the 45-minute when he nodded home Igor Stasevich’s free-kick
But, in 85 minute, Alexandre Lacazette was sent off for elbowing Aleksandar Filipovic, thereby reducing Arsenal to 10-men.
However, Arsenal manager, Unai Emery, still believes that the Gunners have an opportunity of qualifying for the next round when they face Bate Borisov next week.
Speaking after the match, he said: “I trust in our players and I trust in our stadium and supporters. There are two matches”.
“Tonight’s match is important but we can’t [be knocked out in it], we are going to play a second match next week. I trust in our work to prepare for the next match and to have a different result in Emirates Stadium.”
